a bit better chapter than last week, I guess. directing us to the revelation of the empress and I think I agree with you Akainu that the next chapter we might be switched to another SH member.
btw. quick look at Luffy with the bandages looks like he's wearing a thong
Sounds like classic Oda humor.
I have a strange feeling that the so called Snake princess and her sisters are in fact men... Thats why they don't want other men on the island.
However, the bottom right is an elbaf warrior, the middle I think was the original design for daddy the father (although he was filler, he was designed by Oda and had 2 designs) and umm.. the top right kind of looks like the mayor from that town that Buggy attacked, but he looks lame and I'm sure the idea was dropped.
Also the second picture clearly refers to the idea of Skypeia.. I highly doubt it was Oda's original design for the Amazon homeland.
Well she fits the theme of snakes far to well for it to be a simple mistake, at the very least she'll have been the basis for the character that is the Empress. And really I don't think Aokiji looks like the "Strongest Marine" but he is, just because she's got a title doesn't mean that she looks like that title. And speak for yourself I think she looks like an empress quite a bit. Finally her body goes with what we know of her(looks beautiful).
wasn't it said that beauty equals strength among the amazones? so if she is deemed the most beautiful, she actually might just be strong and thus ... well you saw some of these girls. I imagine a situation like this:
Margaret: "bow down to the amazing beauty of our queen"
Luffy :"whaaat? have you eaten some shrooms? she's almost the ugliest I've ever seen"
Everyone: " .... "
Boa Hancock: ""
like Alvida soooo long ago but for a totally different reason.
speaking of Alvida ... Buggy would be the perfect character for a visit on Amazon Lily. I'll leave the rest to your imagination - especially about the handing over certain things and so on. (Mr.2 wouldn't be bad too )
That is hilarious! She wants to grab his golden balls. You can't beat this manga.
Lurking around other boards, people seem to take an interest in the fact that the Amazons could not tell that Luffy had a DF power.
I for one understand why they might not know, being secluded and away from men and most likely the dealings of the world, most of the amazons would be clueless about DF.
Boa, because she travels around, might be the only lines of communication between the rest of the World and the island, putting her in a position to choose what and what not to reveal to her people.
At the same time I have a feeling that Boa herself has a DF power but purposely doesn't tell her people that her "Power" comes from a DF, rather it's a "gift" to those who are "chosen" so they may protect the land from men, thus giving her a more "Empress", "Ruler", "Goddess" look therfore explaining why she is so powerful.
Interesting....Luffy has landed in a island full of chicks......and the top warriors are pirates....why did Kuma send him there...and for what porpuse...Training....did he do the same thing for the others....hmmm ....very interesting
I think it's situation like away from bear tummy to snake belly. But the reason of Kuma throw Luffy there remain a mystery. Do he want Luffy mess with Hancock like Kuzan make Luffy do a real mess with World Government back in Enies Lobby?
Chapter 516 is out!

The RAW is out:
Margaret's so cute <3 Oda's focused on her a lot, plus her eagerness strikes me with the thought that she'd come on-board to the wide world with the SHs somehow, but hope there'll be more scenes when she'd reveal her battling potential (if she's got one).
I also don't think she has to wear the similar costumes with the local Amazonians for the reasons Sagemaster2000 pointed out about her world-wide travelling. The snake with the lady in the picture is also really big which leads to the idea of a considerably superior person amongst the snake-using people also imo.

I think kuma sent all the SH's places so they can learn about what the WG and tenryuubito are doing or have done, didn't one of the new translations sayt the amazons have been isolated for 700 years, that would probably make them know something about poneglyphs and or know of the void century. Has it been stated weather boa is a yonkou or shichibukai?
